obama is to blame. 23% say congress. 20% say wall street. and only 18% say george w. bush which is interesting because it was about a year ago when george bush and the president, current president are neck and neck. 66% of those who responded said that they believe the lousy jobs growth and slow recovery is a result of bad policy and the big question is whose policy? as you can see right there, a plurality say it's the current president. >> gallup does say the president's approval rating is approved for the third straight time but still under 50%. it's like 46.8% and more important, the question we have to you is do you commute in the same direction with your spouse? >> and is that a good idea? and is your marriage better off? do you have a better chance of surviving if you actually car pool together? i've been trying for years to get my husband to leave the house at the ungodly hour that i do. >> keep shake him. >> i would to spend so much more time together with him to talk about those little tasks that we have to get done at the house. he keeps saying, you know, i'd rather
